The Seatrack Smart display shows the yacht and the associated laylines as well as the time and distance information to the line ends together with the layline intersection points. The calculations take account of the tide. ‘Time to go’ is displayed in large numbers at the screen centre and is activated by the clicking on the Start Gun button.

 

The start line can be fixed by pinging from the boat, pinging directly onto the chart or by typing in the position.
